Jajaja: T-Wolves Guard JJ Barea Becomes First Player To Receive Flopping Warning From NBA
T-Wolves guard JJ Barea made a little history on Monday, joining Cavs guard Donald Sloan to become the first players in NBA history to receive a flopping warning under the Leagues new anti-flopping policy.
Barea received his warning following a game against the Kings this past Friday, after faking a collision with Jimmer Fredette and purposely attempting to deceive an NBA official.
Replays showed that Fredette and Barea didn’t actually make contact, in one of your better acting jobs.
Under the new guidelines of the anti-flopping policy, the first violation only garners a warning, with monetary fines staring at $5,000 and reaching all the way up to $30,000 — plus possible suspensions following the 5th offense.
Barea probably isn’t tripping on breaking a little bread with the League, after signing a 4-year, $19 million contract with the T-Wolves following the lockout last season.
